If we’ve learned anything from online marketing and running a business on the internet, it’s that there are always new and exciting ways to make money online.
Not only are there different traffic sources to benefit from, offers to promote, and many different ways to monetize the content on our sites – there are also many ways to replicate, split test and tweak such campaigns and money making methods as well.
With all of this in mind, one of the best ways to continue to find success online and improve profits month after month is to study other case studies and reports from competitors and big name brands who have already gone through the process.
There are two big reasons why this is a must for everyone to pay attention to:
- Oftentimes, companies with a lot of money to burn will release case studies and reports to gain more exposure for their branding. In most cases, they’ve likely spent hundreds of thousands of dollars, or sometimes even millions, on their data reports and case studies. This makes for an excellent and free opportunity for you to learn and benefit from their money.
- The other reason is that it’s way too fast and easy to run a quick split test of your own. This applies to nearly all traffic sources and ad campaigns. If you read a quick report and see that the color green works better than blue, try it out! After a day or two, you should have a whole new data set from your own site or campaigns.
In addition to the two points of discussion above, it’s also important to remember that it’s YOU against the WORLD. There are currently more than a billion active websites and blogs on the internet today – all of which are creating content. This means the competition for your site to rank and reach new audiences is growing harder daily.
To help with this process, we’ve listed five excellent tutorials, case studies and reference guides to help you increase earnings, traffic, and conversion in 2019. Enjoy!
